Course Summary

This MSc programme is for students with an engineering background who want to develop their expertise in aerospace engineering. You can tailor your degree to build on your experience, choosing modules that reflect your interests and chosen specialism.

  • Get involved in internationally leading research with industry partners
  • Join research groups working at the cutting edge of aerospace engineering, and computational modelling at a top UK university
  • Be taught by world-leading academics and have regular contact with them throughout the programme
  • Accredited by the Institute of Mechanical Engineers
  • Work with our state-of-the-art facilities

What you'll study

On this MSc course, you’ll be at the forefront of innovation in aerodynamics. We’ll build on your existing expertise by giving you advanced skills in computational modelling, numerical techniques and an in-depth understanding of engineering approaches to current aerospace problems.

You can then choose to specialise in one of several highly-sophisticated fields, such as space engineering, flight control and simulation, aeroelasticity, computational fluid dynamics, advanced aerodynamics, combustion, computational mechanics and vehicular crashworthiness.

Career paths

You’ll leave this MSc as a very well-qualified graduate, with opportunities for employment in many leading industries as well as in research.

Our Industrial Liaison Forum gives you a chance to network with our industrial partners and build your professional contacts.

Graduates from SEMS postgraduate programmes have gone onto a diverse range of job roles including:

  • Engineering Professionals – Civil, Design, Electrical, Mechanical
  • Biochemist
  • Medical Scientist
  • Actuary
  • Management Consultant


The module is an intensive research module that spans all three MSc semesters. It draws together the knowledge and skills from the taught component to address a research challenge of significant scope to be undertaken independently, under supervision. It focuses on the technical, project management and communication skills needed to successfully execute academic- and/or industry-oriented research. The project entails to apply research methods to solve original problems of fundamental or applied nature.
